3 Cost Effective Ways to Solve Metro Manila's Traffic Problem

The Facebook page of ANC 24/7 is asking for its reader's suggestion on how to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem.

This got me thinking, "what is the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem?" It's easy to make suggestions, what's hard is the implementation and the cost of implementation. So what is the the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem and the most cost effective solution?

Punitive Fines
First of all, any implementation will definitely cost money, a lot of money. The cause of the traffic mess is the people themselves so it's only right that those causing the traffic problem should be fined and the fine should hurt. That way, the fines will pay for the cost of enforcing the law.

So, he sunk part of his fortune into building a garage larger than most homes, complete with a huge underground bay capable of holding up to 40 cars.

While the collection of never-ridden motorcycles and high-end exotic sports cars he's assembled is impressive, they're overshadowed by the most impressive feature of the garage: a gigantic elevator used to access the subterranean area. Powered by hydraulics, the elevator is large enough to fit three cars end to end, and strong enough to lift them with an RV parked on top. It uses 800 gallons of hydraulic fluid and costs Gonzalez $25 in electricity each time it's raised and lowered.

In the accompanying video from HGTV's Million Dollar Room, Gonzalez likens the elevator to one found on a modern aircraft carrier. His is heated, however, and the garage features a ventilation system so that cars can be driven onto the elevator and left running while it operates. When it's closed, fake boulders and a pine tree on its roof keep you from even knowing it's there.
